The Village of Princeville would like to remind residents to move vehicles off of the street if two or more inches of snow are forecast. It shall be unlawful to allow any vehicle or trailer to remain on any street or alley in the village in such a manner as to interfere with snow removal operations, when the accumulation is forecasted to be two or more inches in depth.

If you need a place to park a car, you can park in the empty lot, at the corner of Spring St. & Santa Fe Ave. (The empty lot that is west across from Country Feed and Supplies)

Cleaning up after the holidays? 
Wondering where to donate all the items you are ready to part with? 
The museum takes donations year round for our annual rummage sale.
(May 13 & 14, 2016)
 And, just like Goodwill and Salvation Army, we give you a receipt for a 
tax deduction. But, you don't have to drive it to Peoria. 
We take donations Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 
from 10 am to 2 pm. Not convenient for you on the weekdays? 
We will set up a time to meet, email us at 
or call 385-1916. We take housewares, furniture, clothing, toys, tools, holiday decorations, books, DVDs, appliances and most other items. 
All proceeds from the rummage sale support the museum 
in maintaining the history of Princeville.

Like us on Facebook, we love to post photos from Princeville's past and also to keep yourself up to date on museum events.
